Working With

Artists

Supporting artists to make and showcase contemporary crafts, work collaboratively and develop their practice.
Exhibitions

Our touring exhibitions enable artists to develop new work and raise their profile nationally. Projects linked to exhibitions offer artists an opportunity to push the boundaries of their practice.

Our work was well displayed with well written and stimulating text. Seeing quality craft is always stimulating, but the educational and contextualising analysis made it so much more rewarding. I felt as if I'd been given an in-depth view of how our work fits into the current British craft scene.

Projects

Our education and community projects enable artists to explore making processes and engage with diverse people. These residencies offer artists new perspectives on their work through collaboration.  

We broker partnerships in, for example, health or business settings, which offer artists new markets for their work.

The way the project evolved and the unknown territory it explored was a unique experience.

Ruth Spaak, Artist, Treasure Boxes Early Years project

The support from Craftspace and well constructed framework of the action research project was invaluable. The budget enabled us to be experimental and ambitious with ideas and materials. I am convinced that work produced with critical awareness and clarity of intention provides a means of fertile and stimulating debate with a public audience.

Career development

We work in partnership with others to support artists’ career development, for example through symposia, professional networks and voluntary placements.
